Hey all, I posted an article earlier this week describing how to create a custom security template to configure user accounts to not have expiring passwords. I got a comment on that article indicating that there is an easier way to do this in certain situations. The net.exe tool has a command line you can use to set this for you. Here are the steps you would need to follow to get this to work for XP Embedded:
- Include the Net.exe Utility in your image in Target Designer
- Create a component with a single generic command (or just add a new generic command to the Extra Resources section of your image)
- Configure the generic command to run net accounts /maxpwage:unlimited
Thanks to Alexander Suhovey for the heads up on this one!
